10 (More) New Mexico True Stories You Must Experience to Believe

No. 7 Here, it’s easy to wind up unwinding.

Even the venturesome traveler deserves a little break every once in a while. Mineral springs. Hot springs. Resorts and spas. Whether you seek rejuvenation or not, you’ll find it here. The 100- to 115-degree natural aquifer that bubbles up from beneath Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, is one option – once considered a sacred place of healing by the Apaches. And you’ll soon see why if you have yourself a little soak. The Jemez Springs area (less than an hour from Albuquerque) offers a number of hot springs, from primitive and secluded to luxurious and intimate. Just 50 miles north of Santa Fe, you can soak in private pools, indulge in many Native-inspired spa treatments and, after you’ve loosened up, hike or bike through thousands of acres of national forest and public land. The list goes on. Just relax, and you’ll find your way.
